“I also asked the President of Russia about certain types of weapons. I told him: "When you arrive, we will see what we need and where we really need to strengthen in terms of the Union State. There is nothing to fear, we are ready to go for it. Recent events show that we need to to defend the interests of both Belarusians and Russians more courageously. It so happened that in this regard we were left alone, but not the weakest," Lukashenko said.
According to the Belarusian president, it is a mistake to think that Belarus has weakened, and he would not withstand the current situation in the country.
“We are able to keep the situation not only in Belarus, but also along the perimeter of our borders. You can be sure of our reliability in terms of the defense of our common Fatherland - from Brest to Vladivostok,” he said.
As we reported before, the European Union does not consider Aleksander Lukashenko legitimate President of Belarus. The authority plans to impose sanctions because of the events in that country.
